Orbit Showtime Network was hit by a power failure following a fire in its broadcast centre in Dubai, which has resulted in some channels being unavailable, according to a statement from du.

No staff members were injured during the fire and the broadcast centre facilities are still functional.

At the moment, 44 OSN channels are functioning as normal, including Food Network, Nat Geo Wild, BBC Lifestyle, Sky News HD, BBC World, Animal Planet and Aflam 1 and 2.

The affected channels that are still offline are currently broadcasting unscheduled material while OSN works to return them to normal broadcast.

 OSN and du are addressing the situation with urgency.
